    RE: cannot see picture thumbnails

    I am having the same problem. When I first installed Vista a couple months
    ago, I had no problems seeing thumbnails....then I starting getting these
    Nero error messages, and ever since, I can no longer view picture or video
    thumbnails....I cant for the life of me figure out why. Please, does anyone
    know how to fix this problem.

    P.S. Nero is no longer installed on my machine, and I still cannot view
    thumbnails.

    Re: cannot see picture thumbnails

    Cannot view any thumbnails in Widows Explorer using Windows Vista Ultimate. This used to work but does not work anymore. The images begin to open then revert to an image placeholder icon. Changing the icon size does not change or resolve this issue. This occurs in all my picture files regardless of number of images in the file, type of images, edited or unedited, etc. There are registry fixes for this identical issue for other versions of Windows but I cannot find anything for Vista. It is reported that this issue could occur when uninstalling software, though I have not recently uninstalled anything. I use Adobe Photoshop, and save all images as JPEG. HELP!! Thanks.

    please stop shouting in all CAPS.

    try system restore to a date where it was working.

    Thank you Barb. System restore has been attempted but did not work. I have no problem with images on my laptop, also running Vista Ultimate, only on the HP desktop.

    use at your own risk:

    copy all the text in red to the clipboard

    paste into a new notepad file. save with a .reg extension to
    something like "fixthumb.reg"

    then double click it
